Scientific American Cruise “Evolution Emanation”, February/March 2008

After I posted about the Scientific American cruise to the Western Caribbean, someone told me about the Scientific American Panama Canal/Southern Caribbean cruise from February 27, to March 9, 2009.  (If this whole magazine thing doesn’t work out, SciAm can always work in the travel industry).

The theme is “Evolution Emanation”, and it looks to have another good lineup of speakers, including lectures in 20 subjects, including the following:
